Earth Science Week - Student Workshop

Event Date(s): 28/09/2009 - 17/10/2009

The Seismic Research Centre (SRC) of The UWI, in collaboration with the American Geological Institute (AGI) will be celebrating Earth Science Week 2009 during the period October 11-17.

The SRC theme for the week is “Tsunamis and Other Coastal Hazards.” During that period, the SRC (which monitors earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis for the English-speaking Eastern Caribbean), will have a student workshop on the theme, to which students from Mayaro Secondary School have been invited. Students will have an opportunity to learn the causes, hazards and safety precautions for tsunamis directly from a SRC scientist.

In partnership with the Agriculture Conservation and Forestry NW Conservancy, the SRC will plant 50 trees suited for coastal areas with students from Cedros Secondary School.
